Abstract

In an ideal scenario accessibility issues such as legibility, usability and associated cognitive load, with respect to users of different age groups and impairments, would be considered whenever a new product was created. This means that designers would be challenged by the relation between users’ capability loss and the features of the new product. In this context, understanding what would cause exclusion from use of the products could support designers to make decisions resulting in more accessible products. Consequently, different approaches to supply designers with knowledge about inclusion have been studied throughout the last decades. This chapter analyses how interactive design advisors could provide knowledge about inclusion according to the design activity
